My immersion in Yokai culture inspired my illustration, design, and co-editing of the Yokai Character Collection through PanAm Books in New York with the collection receiving praise in the New York Times (2015). Selected illustration clients include Wall Street Journal Asia, UTNE, Stone Arch Books, CNN, and Metropolis Magazine (Tokyo).
